At two recent White House press conferences, Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki declared that Republicans defunded the police because they did not vote for the “American Rescue Plan” of 2021. This law, which was passed by Democrats without any Republican votes, does not mention “police,” “law enforcement,” or any synonym for these words. Instead, it enacts $1.86 trillion in deficit spending mainly devoted to social welfare programs and bailouts for state and local governments and private union pension funds. Psaki argued that the cities could use some of the bailout money for police. However, nothing in the law requires this, and at least 13 major Democrat-run cities have reduced funding for their police.
